3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Opaque light brown pour with a medium beige head. Cinnamon aroma with a slight note of barbecue sauce, brown sugar and molasses. Sweet and yeasty flavor up front, quickly giving way to spicy cinnamon and clove. For a sweet beer, has a very nice dry finish that is slightly bitter. Well done.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 tasting sample. pours a dark brown with a small off white head... pumpkin, spice, nutmeg nose... medium round body with more spice, cinnamon and some malt... the use of yams is quite unique... and there was a touch of sweet potato in there... didnít really pick up on the 10%... great sweet blended finish of all of the above... a true meal in a bottle... excellent fall / thanksgiving beer from a great start up brewery.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2010 Dark brown pour, little to no head. It smells...um...like candied yams, believe it or not. Itís sweet...really sweet...but a nice spicy finish that makes it quite palatable. Itís better than a pumpkin ale, Iíll give it that. Still not really my thing...but definitely worth a try for itís uniqueness. I sorta liked it, for what it was.

750ml bottle. pours a deep amber under a small off-white head. pumpkin, bubblegum, clove aroma. flavor has lots of pink bubblegum notes. not as spicy as a typical pumpkin beer. bready. sweeter and less spicy. i donít really get any distinctive "yaminess"(not sure what to look for either). the 10% is hidden for the most part. medium body.
